Cause of left rib pain?

Every now and then my left side ribs will feel like someone's stabbing me and it hurts trying to take a deep breath so I'm left with shallow breathing. It lasts anywhere between a minute or two. Specifically the pain is right under my left breast under the ribs. Could it be a heart condition or something?

Any idea's of why or what's going on would be helpful. Or if you think I should make and appointment with my doc. Please and thank you.

  • It may have something to do with the heart, aorta or blood vessels. I'd suggest seeing some form of doctor; particularly a cardiologist. Actually, I'm seeing one tomorrow because of a similar symptom to yours among other ones though.

  • Eat a hamburger. If the pain gets more intense, it's likely your gallbladder.
